From the Inside Flap:

Assorted views of farming life in the Ozarks, compounded with rue and laughter.

"His talent for capturing life on the farm with warmth, humor, and insight transfixed the readers...There just ain't too many farmers who can write as well or spin a tale as tricky as Lanny Gibson." Ken O'Toole, Editor, Carroll County Newspapers

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

My farm is Arkansas scrub: steep hillsides sliding off into deep hollers, knee-high stumps hiding in golden brown broom sage, rocky fields, sagging fences, weeds. Vintage Ozark Mountain Country it ain't. No matter what I do, other farmers spitting tobacco juice drive by to look. It makes their day telling their neighbors: "Gibson's farm's growed up worse'n anybody's."

I go to the feed store, the sale barn, the hardware. They look at me like my donkey don't bray.

I want everything: I want chickens that ain't dying, cows that ain't scrawny, hogs that ain't runts, roofs that ain't leaking, goats that can't jump -- but most of all I want my wife to be happy.

I'm trying everything... (excerpt from Introduction)
